Muncha, Muncha, Muncha

Mr. Mc Greeley decides to plant a garden of yummy vegetables to gobble up, and that’s where the fun begins. Muncha Muncha Muncha by Candace Fleming, tells the story of a determined farmer, three hungry bunnies and a field full of delicious vegetables. Poor Mr. Mc Greeley trying to keep his vegetables safe builds a fence, a wall and even a moat. The delicious smell and taste of carrots, lettuce and tomatoes keep the bunnies coming back for more. The vivid language and colorful pictures make this great entertainment for young readers. They may even be tempted, like the hungry bunnies to eat all of their vegetables (Muncha, Muncha Muncha!)

After reading this book with your child:

  • Try making a salad using the vegetables featured in the story.
  • Consider starting a garden in the yard or in a whiskey barrel.
  • Have fun imitating the movement of the bunnies.
